Located on Calle De La Montera, which connects the city’s famed main square, Puerta del Sol, to the theaters, cinemas, and boutiques of the lively Gran Via Street, Thompson Madrid is housed in two historic buildings and is a dynamic and refined home base for guests to explore the authentic character of the city. The buzzing neighbourhoods of Malasaña, Chueca, and Madrid’s historic city center are within walking distance of the hotel, and a diverse selection of galleries, museums, culinary delights, and cultural landmarks are on every corner.

The hotel’s rich design is reflective of traditional architecture found across Madrid while embodying Thompson Hotels’ recognisable sense of a contemporary, elevated residence. Madrid-based López y Tena, LYTA Interior Design and Arquitecture Studio created interiors that echo the city’s sights, sounds and flavours. Leather, marble and wood accents are elegantly layered to contribute to the sense of timeless design, integrated with ultramodern and sophisticated amenities. The result is a refined escape that remains rooted in its surroundings.

Evocative and warm details run throughout the hotel’s guestrooms and suites, where floor-to-ceiling windows and private terraces invite guests to absorb the city’s ambience. A signature penthouse suite encompasses two stories and offers stylish and spacious living and dining areas, a bespoke bar and an expansive and enviable private balcony that boasts panoramic views of Madrid.

As an artistic epicenter, Thompson Madrid honors the transformative energy of its local culture. ‘Con la cultura por Montera’ the hotel’s motto, celebrates the dynamic impact that design, music, art, fashion and gastronomy have on Madrid, affirming Calle De La Montera as the heart of the city’s creative community. With this motto in mind and leaning into the Thompson Hotel’s Culture Lives Here platform that celebrates the brand’s passion for elevating noteworthy creatives, the hotel is collaborating with exciting culture shifters to express their meaningful impact on Madrid’s culture. Nicolás Villamizar, known locally as ‘Ä’, is renowned for his organic and avant-garde compositions that are inspired by Renaissance paintings.

Additionally, fourth-generation Chef Nino Redruello serves as the property’s culinary culture shifter, bringing the perfect combination of traditional Spanish offerings with an innovative twist to Thompson Madrid. Through Chef Nino, the property will deliver the art of gastronomy, reflecting a daring and unconventional experience through dishes including sour soup with grilled crab and zucchini, sole with black garlic menier and mushrooms and baked quail in bread crust.

OTEYZA, the local contemporary sartorial couture brand that is deeply rooted in Madrid´s cultural and fashion community, will extend the platform into Europe by bringing their Spanish craftsmanship to Thompson Madrid. This joint effort will bring the modern Madrileño spirit to life from within the property as a selected number of their one-of-a-kind hand-made pieces specially designed for the hotel will be displayed in key areas of the hotel. Thompson Madrid’s three signature dining venues celebrate the passionate heritage of the city’s gastronomy. The hotel’s all-day bakery and bistro, located at street level and open to guests and visitors, The Omar, merges mid-century modernism with industrial open plan spaces, inviting guests to sample artisanal patisserie and seasonal, light bites.
